IQPC's 4th Insurance Linked Securities Summit

Click here for the official conference website and registration form. (Southampton, Bermuda)

Insurance-linked securities offer investors both a high potential for growth and a non-correlation with the stock market. Some have even dubbed it “the ideal asset class” and “the holy grail of investments”. Despite coming off its biggest growth year in the brief 10 year history of the market, analysts and economists are still projecting significant growth in the industry.

Now that the market has established itself as a high yield, low beta risk hedge, investors are flooding to the market making the viability for new products increase and the demand for education swell along with it. Join us in Bermuda as we examine in detail the latest deals and product structures, investment and hedging strategies, and tools for investing in life insurance securitizations, catastrophe and other P&C securitizations, as well as the growing life settlement sector.

With the support of capital market financing, the insurance industry is set to become one of the most lucrative markets in the coming years. If you have yet to invest in the ILS industry, or are looking to diversify your portfolio, this event will ensure you make the right investment decisions by presenting a well-balanced perspective on the inherent risks and opportunities in the space.
